Being from Louisiana I grew up on Southern Fried Chicken. I now live in BC Canada. My husband is not much on fried foods so I decided to make it in the oven. The only difference is I use flour and cornstarch for my chicken.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
I use chicken leg quarters or chicken thighs. You can use whatever chicken pieces you like. I season my chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Mix the flour and cornstarch together and dredge my chicken. I place it on baking sheet with a rack. Bake it for 45-50 minutes. Depending on how much and what pieces you are using. I bake it at 425 degrees. Turning once about half way through cooking time.

The chicken is juicy and just as crispy as fried chicken. The cornstarch helps in making it crispy. I do leave the skin on.
